It’s almost the half-way point of the Bout of Books read-a-thon!
Currently reading: The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
1. Paraphernalia: The Curious Lives of Magical Things by Steven Connor
2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Pages read yesterday: 187
Total pages read: 786
I finished Fangirl and it was fantastic! I have a few very specific thoughts on who the book will actually appeal to but I’ll wait until the end of the week to give away more details.
For now I’ve started reading The Hunt. It took me a few chapters to get into it (bit of a shock to go from Fangirl, which had my smiling most of the time, to a serious read), but it’s actually a great story.
What I haven’t been keeping up with is reading other blogs, or even replying to the comments on my page. Days 1 and 2 I was a commenting machine. I must have visited at least 40 blogs. But I have since dropped off. I haven’t even visited my reader all week. I can feel myself getting a cold, so my goal for the weekend (in between bouts of feeling sorry for myself) is to reply to everyone’s comments, and visit as many blogs as I can.
Next read-a-thon I’m going to include that as part of my goals, because while I didn’t get as much reading done, the commenting was great fun and I met heaps of new bloggers!
So please leave me a comment if you’ve been participating or if you’ve got a post you want me to read or even if you just want me to check out your blog! This weekend it’s time to connect with my fellow book lovers!
